    Yeah, sorry for bragging there.

    Well, my education entails a lot of courses, which is a very broad knowledge baggage. I don't really know how to program well, you see, I don't have a talent, like good coders do. I just know the basics. A few grades from uni I suppose I'll show:

    Accounting: 90%
    Financial analysis: 80%
    Communication 101: 90%
    Computer architecture: 60%
    Web development: 70%
    Object Oriented Programming 101: 75%
    Logic theory and data structures 101: 50%
    Systems theory: 60%
    Operating systems theory: 65%
    Network architecture 101: 60%
    Networking 101: 60%
    Networking 201: 60%
    Databases 101: 60%
    Databases 201: 50%
    Software Engineering 101: 60%
    Project Programming 101: 60%
    Software Engineering 2: 60%
    Systems theory 201: 60%
    OO programming 201 (Java, .NET): 60%, 70%
    Databases 301: 65%
    Software Engineering 301: 60%
    Multimedia technologies: 70%
    Communication 201: 70%
    XML and data technologies: 90%
    Communication 301: 70%
    Statistics 101: 50%
    Project management: 50%
    Performance management: 90%
    ICT law: 85%
    Programming 301: 65%
    Enterprise Resource Planning : development: 85%
    Finals programming project: 60%
    UI design 301: 65%
    Programming 401: 60%
    Distinction research paper: 80%


    And that concludes my degree.
    I still haven't mentioned the other ones from my community college degree, but I'm too tired for that. It's more or less the same.
    Why are all of the grades rounded off. Be honest, you didn't take any of them? And you photoshopped that mooc grade as well. Am i right?!

    I don't know what suddenly got into you, John. All the grades I posted are real and I actually opened up my online 'education history board' so I could write my grades out for you. They are all rounded up because that's how my uni grades students. I wouldn't post my results so proudly if I haven't slaved years for them.

    Okay but i still don't believe this :
    'I also did a third degree on Social Media Management.. argh... I forgot to mention that.. anyway.'

    Also you do realise that your degree is basically an enhanced computer science degree. The fact that it has diverse things such as project management in it is good.

    But for my degree i covered english, drama, theatre, education, sociology, spss (data input), and health studies. So you see if it is a points contest on diversity, i think i win there. Plus i have a wife and stepdaughter. Which is really the ultimate trump card i'm afraid to say.

    Good luck with your coding.

    PS please don't take any of this personally, because i still need you to help me with that java mooc, which i am only half way through, thanks again!!??

    I am 35 you know?

    Anyway we are over the worst of it.

    And back to my programming course, i have passed the first three weeks with a grade over 50%, which is what i was aiming for. Hopefully if i keep this up i may just scrape a c pass overall. But I'm not going to kill myself over it,

    Well, when I was finishing up my Computer Science degree, I actually took interest in writing and social media.. which I took a degree in and excelled at because it favors my artistic side more (I'm an artist). I completed those two at the same time. You can't just have a one-directional way in life, you know? You have to expand your interests and live.

    Well, it's not an enhanced computer science degree, that would be a Masters; it's just that, a Bachelors. Bachelor degrees don't consist of just the basic computer science courses, you know, they also require general knowledge (hence all the extra courses), which is exactly what distinguishes it from a community college degree, which is completely specified and one-directional.

    I've had a lot of experience in life, as you may know, and I also did drama in high school, music, drawing, printing press, marketing, art, pointillism, still life, ,.. Ah yes, we used SPSS in our stats101 class. In high school, I also did a second specialization next to the general one, which was 'sports school', which included First Aid and olympic sports.

    Would you like to tell me why you have this drive for competition? I tell you my life and my results out of passion but you seem to be fetching for approval.. it's not very friendly, you know? If you want my help, then I suggest you apologize for your gloating.. Come on man, what's that about? "I have a wife and kids and I trump you"? What the heck..

    I can even trump Ronald himself, with the fact that i had, and to quote my psychiatrist, acute chronic schizophrenia, you know the kind criminals have, and i got better from that as well.

    The fact that you have graduated means that you are my peer. True you know a lot more about coding than me, but we all have different strengths and weaknesses. To be honest my marriage is a bit like the stock markets, one minute it is going well, and the next it is peaking on collapse. What state are you from btw? Thanks to f.b. i have had a few close american friends, over the past few years or so.

    By the way, John, I'm not actually good at coding, I just know the basics. I may appear to be good at coding from a beginner's perspective, but those skills didn't fall into my lap either, you know? I had to study really hard to have all that knowledge and practice into my head.

    Ok, took me 5 minutes to make. My coding skills are rusty, so I cheated a little bit by looking online for a similar solution and I inspired myself off that:
    http://codingbat.com/doc/java-string-substring.html

    The first thing I did was looked at the java language documentation, then for some online examples of the API.
    It helped breaking down the problem and thinking in little pieces.

    Here's the result:


    and here's the code:
    Code:
    public String nTwice(String str, int n) {    
        int stringLength = str.length();    
        String firstChars = str.substring(0,n);   
        String lastChars = str.substring(stringLength-n);     
        return firstChars+lastChars;	}

    here is my latest task:
    Name:  emailv2.png
Views: 22
Size:  144.4 KB

    here is the code i have so far: It is very messy atm sorry:

    import java.util.Scanner;public class EmailGenerator { String firstQuestion = "What is your first name?"; String secondQuestion = "What is your second name?"; String firstChar = firstName.substring(0,1); String fullName = secondName.substring(0,stringLen gth); String a "derby.ac.uk"; public class makeUserName { String firstChar + fullName;} Scanner s = new Scanner(System.in); void sayName() { System.out.println(firstQuestion ); } String firstName=s.nextLine(); void sayName() { System.out.println(secondQuestio n); } String secondName=s.nextLine(); public string makeEmail(makeUsername("at"+a){} EmailGenerator makeEmail = new EmailGenerator(); System.out.println("This user's email is: " +makeEmail+ );} public static void main(String[] args) {}; }

    Good luck with this!

    Here are the other assignments i have:
    A class called GiveChange is provided below. The design of this class is to take a decimal amount from the user representing the change due to them from a purchase, and return the number of quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies that should be given to the user to make that total.The main method has been defined for you, and utilizes four static methods: getQuarters, getDimes, getNickels, and getPennies. Each method takes the total change in pennies (i.e., $3.80 = 380 pennies). As the denomination gets smaller, additional parameters are added to represent the number of quarters, dimes and nickels that minimize the change returned.Write the method definitions for getQuarters, getDimes, getNickels, and getPennies.

    /* author your_name*/import java.util.Scanner;public class GiveChange { /** param p number of pennies * return number of quarters */ public static int getQuarters(int p) { //TODO: method definition for getQuarters } /** param p number of pennies * param q number of quarters * return number of dimes */ public static int getDimes(int p, int q) { //TODO: method definition for getDimes } /** param p number of pennies * param q number of quarters * param d number of dimes * return number of nickels */ public static int getNickels(int p, int q, int d) { //TODO: method definition for getNickels } /** param p number of pennies * param q number of quarters * param d number of dimes * param n number of nickels * return number of leftover pennies */ public static int getPennies(int p, int q, int d, int n) { //TODO: method definition for getPennies } public static void main(String[] args) { Scanner s = new Scanner(System.in); System.out.println("How much change is to be given?"); double change = s.nextDouble(); int pennies = (int)(change * 100); int q = getQuarters(pennies); int d = getDimes(pennies, q); int n = getNickels(pennies, q, d); int p = getPennies(pennies, q, d, n); String str = String.format("The customer should recieve %d " + "quarters, %d dimes, %d nickels, " + "and %d pennies.", q, d, n, p); System.out.println(str); }

    and this:
    Write a complete Java class called RemoveIt, which has one class variable, a constructor that takes a single argument, and one class method. These should behave as specified below.Class variable:
      • A String, used to hold a sentence to manipulate
    Constructor:
      • Take a String as a parameter, and assigns its value to the class variable
    Class method:
      • Take a String as a parameter, and return a new String that removes the first instance of the parameterString from the class variable.
      • As an example, if the argument is "cat", and the class variable stores "A kittycat is at the door", then the class method should return "A kitty is at the door".
      • As a second example, if the argument is "d", and the class variable stores "Candy is bad for your teeth", then the class method should return "Cany is bad for your teeth".
      • Note, for the purpose of this question, you can ignore the case where the parameter String does not appear in the class variable. This involves material we'll look at in Topic 3.
    /** @author your_name*/ public class RemoveIt { //TODO: instantiate class variables /** @param sentence String to manipulate */ public RemoveIt(String sentence) { //TODO: constructor definition } /** @param toRemove String to remove from sentence * @return manipulated String */ public String remove(String phrase) { //TODO: remove definition } }
